Railroad Photography

American West

The Forgotten Main Street of America

History. Artistic. Passion.

Nothing touches my heart like hearing a locomotives horn echoing off in the distance. The softly muted tone that trails as it’s smoothed by the cushion of air between me and the train that may be miles away. That sound is exhilarating as it quiets my soul and sparks memories for my love of trains. As a photographer this is what I live to capture; that feeling, the sounds, and even smells.

A low vibrating hum that grows from a faint whisper into a clash of battling steel squealing up the mountain grade as the locomotives grind past and the smell of diesel fumes fill the air.

A STRONG HISTORY CONNECTED TO TRAINS

Shooting trains brings me back to a simpler time when my grandpa would work the rail and my dad would take me on trips to watch trains along the Mississippi River. I remember being at my cousin’s house who lived near the Chicago and North Western mainline, we would often find grandpa putting on a train horn clinic as he railed past us with a simple smile and a wave as he echoed off into the distance. Looking back to when I was just a teenager, I have a deep appreciation for how my mom and Sue always knew that trains were important to me so they would work tirelessly to plan our vacations around my first love.
